Midfielder Scott Robertson has been recalled from his loan spell with Gillingham by Scottish giants Celtic.
The 19-year-old joined the Gills in September on a season-long loan deal but both parties had the right to review the situation during the January transfer window.
Robertson featured 19 times for Gillingham this season but failed to find the net.
He started last Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to bottom side Burton but was taken off at half-time and replaced by striker John Akinde.
Gillingham manager Steve Evans said: "Scott is an outstanding young player who has developed nicely in the last few months.
“He has returned to Celtic and we wish him all the very best."
Speaking last month, Evans said that he could see a bright future for Robertson on his return to Celtic.
“I cannot give any bigger testament to a in Scott Robertson than to say he will play in the Celtic first team next season," said Evans.
“He might not play every week but he will play for them.
“I know he is very highly thought of by all the coaching staff there. They had a representative at the game and he would have gone away thinking, ‘we have a good player there’, but they know it anyway.
“I thought he played with composure at times, with grit and determination, which is perhaps why they sent him here when three points matter, rather than playing academy games."
Robertson is the second loan player to depart the Gills this month with Championship side Coventry recalling midfielder Josh Eccles.
Gills drafted in Southampton's Tyreke Johnson last week and he made his debut against Burton, initially as a wide midfielder before playing up front in the closing stages.
